Peptide nucleic acid - an opportunity for bio-nanotechnology


Anstätt, Philipp; Gasser, Gilles (2014). Peptide nucleic acid - an opportunity for bio-nanotechnology. CHIMIA International Journal for Chemistry, 68(4):264-268.

Abstract

DNA is a major player in the field of bio-nanotechnology and many interesting applications have been realized using this oligonucleotide. In contrast, the use of peptide nucleic acid (PNA), which is a non-natural, neutral analogue of DNA with superior hybridization strengths compared to DNA, is still in its infancy in bio-nanotechnology. However, as demonstrated in this short review using selected studies, promising examples demonstrating the tremendous opportunities that PNA can offer for bio-nanotechnology were recently described.
